Things to know about Aussies...

Australians REALLY like sports

Australians REALLY like public holidays

Australians REALLY like BBQ's

Australians REALLY like to drink

Australians REALLY like to drink at BBQ's held in

honour of major sporting events and public holidays

Australians REALLY feel like the illustration below

after a weekend involving two different football grandfinals

and a public holiday Monday.

OK, it may just be me... So instead of posting anything I've just added links to your blogs. Wow, that only took twelve-odd months. If I missed you, which is possible, let me know and I'll add your name this time next year.

Take: 48

Blogger Wendy mused...

is it because you don't love me anymore? Or because I said I was going to link everyone on MY blog this weekend and didn't?

Links are haaaaard...(say in a whiney voice)

You will always be the warm little centre of my blog world Wendy!

Which is why I linked you. Or are you just upset that I linked you as a Teenage Drug Mule?

Doh! I was looking for the "W". I like your link title better! I really need to re-create that story.

It is pretty funny that there is probably only you, me, Squid and maybe one or two others that would understand that reference.

It was a truly excellent story. Just feel lucky I didn't call you Happy Choking til Pee Girl.

Lol! So you had a good time :0)

I guess we can gather from your post that Australians really like to party!

Love the star in your eyeball.

See people, Pal really does love cricket... the puppet...

Most Aussies enjoy a quiet beer with their mates... as long as it's followed by a lot more loud beers. It was fun, I know good people. But now I need a day off from fun and good people.

Star in my eyeball? Sheesh, is that what that is!? I wondered why my head was pounding.

I thought the world was an oyster?!?!

Did you know that you can get yer links cloumn to display properly at the top of your page by making your page wider in the template?
Because you publish pictures, they have preference in your page display over the sidebar.
You probably know this and I'm just annoying you...

You forgot,
Aussies put the "our" in "honour"...sounds like something a coach would say.

Very creative links..kinda like a fun word search! (on crack) :)

OOooo...LOVE that moon!

I'm a moon goddess. :-)


Thank you for the linky!
Will add you after my insane weekend is over.

No Fair.
I'll look like your piccie but
there won't be any alcohol involved.

P.S. I can't remember if I thanked you for the 'Ice Cream Cake' on my b-day?!!?
Thank You! :-D

It was either that title or 'Paper Tube Solo!'. I may yet change it...

Thanks for the tip on the template. I have no idea how to do that stuff though.

Hey JLee,

I work with medical type professionals so when we come across someone doing the wrong thing we usually say 'He's putting the tit into practitioner', is that the same thing?

Yours was actually the hardest title to come up with, I was going to put it as 'Deletes Blog, Photoshops Face' but then I realised that was actually my description.

Australia has changed a LOT in the last couple of decades but thankfully this part of Aussie culture has continued to be a common denominator with people from all walks of life.

Hey Jin, the moon is an illustration I did for a kiddies book I was writing. I probably should finish that at some stage.

Well, at least after a nights sleep you'll feel better. I unfortunately felt the alcoholic effects for the entire next day. Blaaarrggggg... still worth it though.

Yes! You did thank me. It was my pleasure. Everyone desrves Cake on their B'day. In a cute coincidence my younger Bro also gets an ice-cream cake on his birthday.

Australians REALLY are just like those fun-loving good-looking people in the Outback steakhouse commercials.

Except hung over?

Things Americans love:

Television, usually stupid reality tv shows.

Hey Mizfit, I know, I know, but you do... and it was too difficult to come up with a descriptor for you insightful, touching, and even humorous posts.

I think you're right. I just had a holiday, but I'll take another. Holidays are goooood!

Excellent JLee, I'm sure it's very, um, sorta, kinda, possibly specific.

Nice train impersonation l>t, "Woo Woo".

Trust me, in my books being called freak'n nuts is a compliment.

That's exactly what Australians aren't like, well, except the hung-over thing... actually we call it being well hung!

Hey Cricket, you little cutie you!

Don't be fooled, everyone LOVES cricket! I'm afraid I linked you up with Squid. If you'd prefer your own link I'm sure it can be arranged. I know what it's like to always have to share things with another person. My older brothers birthday is two days before mine on the calendar. We always shared parties.

I linked you under 'Some Sort of Star'. You even get alliteration!

Actually, not many people realise this but American culture has been installed via TV over the Australian culture. You'll find that list is pretty much what Aussies like as well. Not baseball though, no, not baseball! We have an equally fascinating sport called cricket. It's like baseball only a lot more strategic and dangerous.

I don't think a Grady you would make then. Maybe you should try for Holly Golightly, but not the Axelrod version of course. Although if you had a dark mouth a salty mind and looked like Audrey you could do anything you wanted really.

Sunday after Sunday... Eeek, I have a thing against Sundays. Sundays were days where half the day was spent hearing about how evil you were, why you were going to hell, and why god was going to punish you. And that was just the car ride to church. I'd prefer Saturday after Saturday.

I miss drinking in Australia until I felt like a moon with an arrow to pee in.

"Please Send Bananas"! I like that.

Now I must put my considerable brain power to work and find a suitable name for your link.

Anonymous Rich mused...

I can soooo see you sitting on Coogee beach with a banana daiquiri in one hand and a pee-arrow in the other.

I used none of my limited brain power to come up with that link name. I just used the three very cute words that appear in each and every one of your posts.

Dude! I didn't see you down here. Of course you can get second hand drunk, the blood transfusion is messy, but you can do it.

Personally I prefer 18 year old scotch. It's just as messy but somehow more satisfying.
